Let’s make Easter Eggs

DIY Easter eggs with napkins and Mod Podge are fun for everyone

Fun for the whole family without the mess of food coloring

Easter Eggs are getting a makeover this year. This activity provides fun for everyone with any skill level.  It's that time of year when you can find paper goods even at the dollar store make adorable eggs. All you will need are some paper napkins, plastic eggs, Mod Podge and a paint brush. I purchased everything I needed at Hobby Lobby. So simple, just cut out patterns or if you have small hands around they can tear the pieces without having to use scissors. paint a thin coat of Mod Podge onto the egg to help the napkin pieces adhere more easily.  Then add another coat over the top to completely cover. Let them dry and you will be able to use them year after year.

Let them dry and they will last for years to come

 

For some additional ideas purchase a package of neon sharpies and some rubbing alcohol. Add color to the eggs with pens, then use a cotton swab to apply rubbing alcohol over the ink. The result is beautiful. Create patterns, dots, or color washes.

 

To add detail use a  darker sharpie to create outlines.

And if that's not enough there are fabulous thing you can do with paint. Splatter paint on your eggs and then using a paint brush, splash small amounts of water over your painted eggs and the colors will run together leaving you with a kaleidoscope of color. For those of us with more decorator style, select paint colors that match your home and marbleize or add simple designs to your easter this year.

 

If you really want to dazzle the kids, do it with firefly easter eggs.
